romney will be connecting with several key voting groups. according to the latest fox news latino poll 60% of latinos would pick the democratic ticket right now, 30% would choose the republican nominee. meanwhile one columnist explains how governor romney can avoid lights out tonight. he says and this is a quote, mitt romney must make americans understand in the clearest of terms how he'll create jobs. he needs to finally take his bain experience and turn it into a plus. rick sanchez wrote that column for fox news latino. he's also a fox news contributor. great to see you, rib. not only that poll that we just put up on the screen. the "wall street journal" came out with a poll, the president has a 50-point lead among latinos, why is that. >> the first thing is that's just nothing more than a huge opportunity that has been missed. ao eights a big fat fast ball right across the plate and it just seems like governor romney has not been able to hit out of park. here you have a block of voters. a lot of people don't know this. gregg. 34% of hispanics who arrive in the united states con

looks to be, or is there a particular voting block, whether it's latino votes, whether it's seniors, that seems to be moving more towards mitt romney in the state oflorida? >> well the most recent poll that was out last week by the "tampa bay times," miami herald and bay news 9 had hispanic voters shifting. those would be noncuban his high school. i can explain in a second. rehave a large population of noncuban hispanics in florida who are more independent, who tend to lean more democratic. a lot of them are in the i4 cord der around suburban orlando. they are shifting our polls showed toward mitt romney. the obama people said to our poll that we didn't believe it and they thought that president obama will get and needs to get about 60%, about three of every his five hispanic votes in florida need to goat president's way. they are a big, big part of the election threat in the sunshine state. jenna: the "associated press" had a piece out today about how florida is the top of the top when it comes to ad spending and all those commercials all the time. steve, has it reached the point o

immigration thing sounds pretty good? >> i don't think it's effective at all. i think latino voters have to be thinking this is a football sort of issue again. it may be difficult for him to keep his promises. the secret sauce is serious enforcement. then you have it under control. then you can look at a comprehensive solution and see local and political movement on both sides. everyone knows thesauruses entitlement reforms, it is the most serious driver of the dead. it is a disgrace to not tell people what your plan is, and then tell the des moines register, oh, yeah, but i'm going to have a great deal six months from now. if you're coming in six months, tell us what your specific ideas are for dealing with medicare, medicaid, and social security. he doesn't want to do that because it will take away from his demagoguery two weeks before the election. jenna: who knows what either side will pop up with between now and then. we look forward to having you back as always. thank you. >> let's turn now to the latest on the investigation on our consulate in libya. wives of four americans.

elections. the key to new mexico is the latino population there, the largest in the country. that is the voting block that both candidates are wooing. the president is leading in polls there but the race could be more competitive than it looks with still more than a month some go. michael coleman is the washington bureau chief for the albuquerque journal. your sense of things was that the race was closer. do you feel that way now? >> i do feel that way the national polls have had the race as much as 10, 14 points. we had a poll that showed the race 5 points a couple of weeks ago. it will be interesting to see what happens in the next 30 days. you hit the nail on the head when you said romney's performance among hispanic voters in new mexico will be absolutely critical. jenna: anything in the debate you think will particularly resonate with the residents of new mexico and maybe even that voting block? >> one of the things that i thought was effective for mitt romney in that debate was that he performed well obviously, and secondly people in new mexico haven't seen much of mitt romney he's
